So last Paint day at the Citadel in Groton CT, I picked up the OOP Chainmail Mini Orc Druid, because folks on the hangouts were talking about him...

Orc Druid

 

So I spoke to Dilvish, Chaoswolf, & Pezler, (and David Brawley), and most of us have him, (David has an Orc Champion) and we decided to have a Hangout Group Paint of this guy, for the Month of February.

 

Now Dilvish still needs to get one, and the Citadel still has a few extra....

 

So if you have this figure, or a Chainmail or other Orc Spell Caster, Join in and paint with us!

 

This is not a contest, or any type of pressure event, it is just something for a bunch of folks to do and talk about while we are hanging out....

 

So Join in if you like...

 

Watch if you like!

Edit:

 

I plan on doing my own WiP Thread, and using my placeholder below to put 1 pic of the latest sessions work.....

 

Edit #2

 

Should we pick one night a week for working specifically on this mini on the hangouts?

If so, what night is best?

(Obviously, this isn't any kind of mandatory thing, It would just be set up for everyone to be able to show off their work, as well as asking each other's opinions about things, as well as the "Does anyone know what that doohickey on his belt is????" type questions....)

 

Edit #3

For those of you who don't have, or want to get the Chainmail figure, Reaper makes this guy:

So I am putting my place holder here....

(I am doing the Druid mentioned above.... :blues: )

 

(This is for ONE pic of the latest sessions work, when it starts)

 

Instead of one pic, I decided to place a link to my WiP, and encourage others to do the same!

As I update this post, the old stuff will move below the spoiler. My main thread is here.

 

Started the month by stripping the mini, cleaning some mold lines, and then priming it. Also, now actually doing the druid, and not the champion, though I may start him too. 

 

 

 

My placeholder is here!

Orc Champion (unless I get a druid in the next week or so)

 

Just realized that the skull has been shaved off the chest plate. Weird... Must have gotten him used.

That's a pretty neat figure; I don't think I've ever seen it before.

 

I'll have to go mine the lead mountain and figure out where mine is in the next few days.

Cool, The Druid is one of 4 Chainmail figures I actually got painted back when I played.

I wonder if I have another?  It's quite possible, I mostly played Drazen's Horde and bought a lot of Chainmail.

Looking carefully under his outstretched arm, I noticed that he's actually wearing chainmail under his hide armour. I'm thinking that it's actually supposed to have been an orc shaman, but they changed the name to Druid for unfathomable reasons, possibly because he's based off of a nature theme.

There is now a poll at the top of the thread for what day of the week for our online group paint is best for folks.....

Also, even though today is the first day of doing this, we have been discussing what the next months mini should be...

 

My main concern for this going forward is that they should be primarily REAPER minis, and Ideally, ones that are available in both METAL and bones, so that people can paint the material that they are comfortable with....

(The Chainmail Orc Druid mini just kinda happened because so many folks on the hangout that night mentioned having them / being able to get them easily...)

 

My suggestion was to do 

60044: Damiel, Iconic Alchemist (METAL)

 

89010: Damiel, Iconic Alchemist (bones)

 

Chaoswolf suggested doing monsters / critters, so that by the end of the year, we have a Warband / Encounter....

 

other ideas and suggestions are very welcome!

 

So chime in and join us!

I like either of those two. With Damiel, I could try some potion bottle effects, and with Norgol maybe I could finally take a stab at NMM; or at least practice my shaded metallic that I took the class in at last RCon.

A couple alternate ideas for what to paint for the rest of the year:

1) Since we started with a druid, the rest of the year could be all spellcasters.

2) Different character classes throughout the year. We started with a druid, so do a fighter next, then a sorcerer, then a thief, etc.

 

As for as what day is best for me, it's hard to say. My schedule is always so jacked up. Probably a weekend day though.

My preference would be humanoid monsters, more of the things that tend to get used most frequently. Bugbears, gnolls, lizardmen, goblins, kobolds, etc. Plus there's lots of them out there, in both Bones and metal.

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
       
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
       
      Hope you like what you see...

      Some pretty good deals in the early bird specials:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/399883540/orc-warband-collectors-by-yedharo-and-gt-studio-cr
       
      Offering 30mm, 70mm, Busts and 1/10 () Scale figures.  Something for everyone!  
       
      I got the early bird 4 bust deal.  FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.

      This is the mini I painted a few months back.
       
      My first try at painting tattoos too :D
      I'm very happy how he turned out, I've used him as a boss in my dnd campaign and people loved him :D
       

       
       
      Next to a Mantic Greatax Orc :D

       
      Next to a heavily converted 03197: Thelgar Halfblood :D

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
       
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!

      What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame?  This is Ollie.  Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams.  Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy.  I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon.  The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off.  Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box!  So without further ado:
